URALCHEM

Moscow, Russia (November 21, 2013) — The URALCHEM group, a leading Russian producer of mineral fertilizers, has refinanced part of its loan portfolio by procuring a 5-year unsecured syndicated loan. The proceeds of the loan have been used to refinance the current syndicated loan deal, concluded in December 2012, under which the Group used assignment of rights on its export contracts as security interest for the loan.

The syndicated loan was obtained on 18 November 2013 from a pool of leading international and Russian banks. Nordea Bank AB (publ), HSBC Bank PLC, Raiffeisenbank and and Rosbank (Société Générale Group) were Mandated Lead Arrangers. Within the framework of the deal, OJSC Nordea Bank acted as Documentation Agent and Nordea Bank AB (publ) acted as Facility Agent. The deal was closed within a very short time, only four weeks from the date of the official invitation to the banks.

The plant in Kirovo-Chepetsk acted as the borrowing party from the URALCHEM Group. URALCHEM OJSC, the plant in Voskresensk, the plant in Perm, SIA URALCHEM Trading in Riga and URALCHEM Trading House were the guarantors of the loan.

The amount of the loan in Euros is the equivalent of US $200 million. The interest rate is Euribor 3m + 2.5%. The loan documentation made provision for an option of a drawdown in Euros, which the company used. The loan period is 5 years with a grace period of 2 years. This was the debut unsecured syndicated loan for the Group, and it made it possible to release secured assets on the assignment of rights on export contracts. The new deal has allowed for reduction of the interest rate on the loan by more than 1.5%, as well as the increase of the average time frame for repayment of the loan.

Dmitry Konyaev, CEO of URALCHEM OJSC commented, “Our mutually beneficial cooperation with the leading banks that form the syndicate has been going on for years. The terms of the new deal and the efficiency of its closing show the high confidence that the banks have in the Group and the sustainability of its financial position. We are grateful to our creditors and appreciate our partnership with them.”

IAPAM Announces Dates for Next Aesthetic Medicine Symposium: December 7-8, 2013

The IAPAM’s Aesthetic Medicine Symposium was specifically designed as a “one-stop” program to add non-insurance based medical procedures to a practice, or to start a new medspa. The IAPAM announces the dates for its next Aesthetic Medicine Symposium in Scottsdale, Arizona: December 7-8, 2013 with hands-on botox and laser tattoo removal training.

IAPAM

Las Vegas, Nevada, USA (November 19, 2013) — The IAPAM’s guiding principle is enRICHing Physicians Lives. Our goal is to support physicians who have little or no business education, are over their head with student debt and now, with reduced insurance reimbursements, are looking for cash-based modalities to add to their practices and to add to their bottom lines.

The IAPAM’s Aesthetic Medicine Symposium was designed to give physicians all the information, forms, DVDs, hands-on training, etc. that they need to begin offering aesthetics when they finish the conference. As well, it is important to understand that botox is not a profit centre, just a gateway to make money with other aesthetic procedures. Only the IAPAM’s Symposium teaches physicians about this principle….. no one else is offering this competitive intelligence.

Indeed, while this is nothing new, offering non-insurance based procedures is more on the top of the minds to physicians lately, and the IAPAM understands this. The IAPAM is the only complete program that offers:

– An Accelerated program; physicians and their staff can be certified over a weekend;
– 19 training DVD’s to take back to one’s practice;
– Board certified Dermatologists as instructors;
– Internationally recognized Certification;
– over 20 CME (Continuing Medical Education) credits;
– 1 Year practice support (continues as long as a member); and much, much, more!

“More patients are turning to the more inexpensive non-invasive procedures rather than surgical cosmetic procedures,” says Jeff Russell, Executive Director of the International Association for Physicians in Aesthetic Medicine (http://www.iapam.com). “They may not get the long term benefits of a face lift, but with a combination treatment of botox and dermal fillers, then can get a great result at a fraction of the price.”

For more information on the IAPAM’s December 7-8 Symposium with Botox Training, watch this comprehensive video at http://www.youtu.be/bBQlS0CpOvw or to register for the December Aesthetic Medicine Symposium on December 7-8, 2013, please contact the IAPAM, at 1-800-219-5108 ext. 704, or visit http://www.iapam.com/aesthetic-medicine-symposium-botox-training.

About the IAPAM: The International Association for Physicians in Aesthetic Medicine

Behind-the-scenes with Edgar Perez: The 11th-Hour Deal to End the Government Shutdown of October 2013

Edgar Perez, Celebrated Book Author of The Speed Traders and Knightmare on Wall Street, Presents The 11th-Hour Deal, Behind Washington’s Closed-doors During the 16-day Government Shutdown of October 2013.

The 11th-Hour Deal - Edgar Perez

New York City, NY, USA (November 18, 2013) — Edgar Perez, the celebrated author of The Speed Traders, An Insider’s Look at the New High-Frequency Trading Phenomenon That is Transforming the Investing World, and Knightmare on Wall Street, The Rise and Fall of Knight Capital and the Biggest Risk for Financial Markets, is presenting his newest book, The 11th-Hour Deal, Behind Washington’s Closed-doors During the 16-day Government Shutdown of October 2013 (http://www.The11thHourDeal.com), the behind-the-scenes story of the dramatic days between October 1st and 16th. The 11th-Hour Deal, to be released on February 7, 2014, will provide a comprehensive day-by-day account of what happened behind closed doors in Washington when the political class negotiated in fits and starts reopening of the government and raising the debt ceiling to ultimately arrive to an agreement at the 11th-hour.

On October 17, 2013, just minutes into the day, President Barack Obama signed the bill that ended a 16-day partial government shutdown and raised the debt ceiling, after weeks of negotiations that gave way to a frenzied Wednesday night in Washington as Congress finally passed the bill that would prevent the country from crashing into the debt ceiling. Members of both the Senate and House of Representatives had worked dangerously close to the midnight debt ceiling deadline amid warnings the government of the United States of America could run out of money to pay its bills if Congress didn’t raise the debt ceiling.

The Republican-led House had given the final stamp of approval voting 285 to 144 for the bill brokered by the Democratic-led Senate, which had voted on Wednesday evening, 81 to 18. The proposal had been hammered out by the chamber’s Republican and Democratic leaders after continued resolutions approved by the House that defunded Obamacare, President Barack Obama’s signature healthcare initiative, went nowhere. The debt cushion was extended through February 7, with current spending levels being authorized through January 15.

The 16 days of the partial government shutdown had come at a steep cost. Standard and Poor’s estimated it took $24 billion out of the economy; Fitch Ratings had put the U.S. AAA credit rating on watch for a potential downgrade. The possibility of a debt default spooked investors on Wall Street and hiked interest rates. Furthermore, it impacted American’s top-notch financial and business global preeminence; China, America’s largest foreign debt holder with $1.28 trillion of U.S. bonds, was already calling for considering building a de-Americanized world.

Perez (http://www.MrEdgarPerez.com) is widely regarded as the preeminent global expert in investing and high-frequency trading. Perez has been interviewed on Sina Finance, CNBC Squawk On The Street, Bloomberg TV’s Market Makers, CNN en Español’s Dinero, FOX Business’s Countdown to the Closing Bell, CNBC Worldwide Exchange, CNBC Cash Flow, CNBC Squawk Box, BNN Business Day, CCTV China, Bankier.pl, TheStreet.com, Leaderonomics, GPW Media, Channel NewsAsia Business Tonight and Cents & Sensibilities.

In addition, Perez has been globally featured on FXFactor, Columbia Business, OpenMarkets, Sohu, News.Sina.com, Yicai, eastmoney, Caijing, ETF88.com, 360doc, AH Radio, CNFOL.com, CITICS Futures, Tongxin Securities, ZhiCheng.com, CBNweek.com, Caixin, Futures Daily, Xinhua, CBN Newswire, Chinese Financial News, ifeng.com, International Finance News, hexun.com, Finance.QQ.com, Finance.Sina.com, The Korea Times, The Korea Herald, The Star, The Malaysian Insider, BMF 89.9, iMoney Hong Kong, CNBC, Bloomberg Hedge Fund Brief, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, Dallas Morning News, Valor Econômico, FIXGlobal Trading, TODAY Online, Oriental Daily News and Business Times.

Perez has been engaged to present at the Council on Foreign Relations, Vadym Hetman Kyiv National Economic University (Kiev), Quant Investment & HFT Summit APAC 2012 (Shanghai), U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (Washington DC), CFA Singapore, Hong Kong Securities Institute, Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences at New York University, University of International Business and Economics (Beijing), Hult International Business School (London and Shanghai) and Pace University (New York), among other public and private institutions.

He has spoken at a number of global conferences, including Emerging Markets Investments Summit 2013 (Warsaw), CME Group’s Global Financial Leadership Conference 2012 (Naples Beach), Harvard Business School’s Venture Capital & Private Equity Conference (Boston), High-Frequency Trading Leaders Forum (New York, Chicago, London), MIT Sloan Investment Management Conference (Cambridge), Institutional Investor’s Global Growth Markets Forum (London), Technical Analysis Society (Singapore), TradeTech Asia (Singapore), FIXGlobal Face2Face (Seoul) and Private Equity Convention Russia, CIS & Eurasia (London).

Perez was a vice president at Citigroup, a senior consultant at IBM, and a strategy consultant at McKinsey & Co. in New York City. Perez has an undergraduate degree from Universidad Nacional de Ingeniería, Lima, Peru (1994), a Master of Administration from Universidad ESAN, Lima, Peru (1997) and a Master of Business Administration from Columbia Business School, New York, with a dual major in Finance and Management (2002). He belongs to the Beta Gamma Sigma honor society. Perez resides in the New York City area and is an accomplished salsa and hustle dancer.

Art Gallery Names Lara Bardsley for Artist Showcase

Light Space & Time

Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery is pleased to announce that Australian artist Lara Bardsley is now the gallery’s featured artist and she will now be showcased and promoted for the next 30 days.

Jupiter, FL, USA (November 16, 2013) — Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery is pleased to announce that Australian artist Lara Bardsley is now the gallery’s featured artist and she will now be showcased and promoted for the next 30 days.

Art Gallery Names Lara Bardsley for Artist Showcase

Lara lives and creates her art in Melbourne, Australia and she has spent 20 years refining her art practice through studies at Victorian College of the Arts, the La Trobe School and also through mentorships with professional artists. Lara’s practice spans different mediums including film, photography and painting. Each of her works is designed to inspire and reaffirm the beauty and transcendent that exists in the everyday.

Lara states this about her art, “I believe that some things cannot be spoken, only felt and perhaps alluded to through the arts. I completed Masters in Psychology 18 years ago. The experience was formative in that it catapulted me to further my interest to explore the unseen and the unconscious. I have explored these themes further in undertaking training in Jungian and Transpersonal psychology and practicing and exploring Buddhism, meditation and mindfulness practices.”

She continues her thoughts, “It is both an honor and a challenge to be in the unique position to bear witness to the way we seek to find meaning in our lives and my artwork attempts to source and explore my understanding of these themes in visual form.”

Lara also completes her thoughts on her art, “I am drawn to work of Abstract Expressionists such as Mark Rothko, Gerhard Richter and the alignment of the human and the Divine in the works of Gustav Klimt, the free gestural language of Twombly, Monet, Kline, among many others. In my own work, I often create images in black and white, distilling movement, light and urgency from the feeling of stillness and unity which I may represent as a gold leaf panel. My images may appear immediate or primitive as they emerge from my inner world. I strive to work a balance between informing the work and allowing it to guide me where it wants to go.”

Lara’s wonderful and vibrant website can be seen here: http://www.larabardsley.com.
